Bird opticians – A Brief History

John Bird first qualified as an optician in 1963 and he became the youngest branch manager for Theodore Hamblin at the age of 22. Within five years he had worked his way up to becoming a director of Hallamshire Opticians and a director for D&A Opticians by his mid thirties. With 20 years experience Mr Bird decided the time was right in 1983, to set up his own practice and Bird Opticians was born.

Since 1983 Mr Bird has built up a very successful business and our team now includes a full time and part time optometrist (ophthalmic optician); three full time dispensing opticians (all of whom are registered with the general optical council; two full time receptionists, one part time optical advisor, two part time optical assistants and of course our Saturday girl.

All of our optometrists and dispensing opticians are fully qualified and have many years experience, delivering friendly, professional and expert service. All of our staff, including our receptionists are fully trained in performing Humphrey field testing as part of our routine glaucoma testing.

Our reputation is built on providing high quality service to the people of Sheffield, ensuring they receive the most thorough eye examination and high quality spectacles available. Our team do not work on a commission, so their main aim is to ensure our customers are satisfied and want to return time after time.
